The Pamlico Sound Machine is an up-beat, live-performance band based out of eastern North Carolina & formed in 2007. They perform a wide range of music genres such as Motown, Pop, Rock and many more. Their song list is a mix of well-known modern and old-school selections which everyone can sing along to and is great for any age group.
The Donald Thompson Band delivers rousing versions of blues, vintage rhythm ‘n’ blues and
classic rock, entertaining and delighting audiences of all ages wherever they go. The band’s
colorful stage attire harkens back to the “cool threads” worn by the performers of the 1940s and '50s.
Couple this look with dynamic vocals, hot guitars, wailing harmonica, and in-the-groove
drumming and you’ve got a treat for both the eyes and the ears. Fans often comment on the
band’s energy and the good-time feeling that the band brings to every show.
